I guess I'm back to doing Meetup Sunday again. Same thing as last time - potluck lunch at the winery. Though I would assume they're moving it indoors, since it's now cold.

And since I just RSVP'd and it is tomorrow and I want to use what I had on hand:

- Chickpeas? Check.
- Pureed pumpkin? Check.
- Lemon juice? Check.
- Olive oil? Check.
- Garlic? Check.
- Spices? Check.

Thusly, pumpkin hummus (my own recipe, adapted from 2 other recipes):

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 c. pumpkin puree
3 TBSP. lemon juice
1 TBSP. water
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
fresh cracked pepper to taste
1 tsp. cumin

Combine all in food processor. Add olive oil until you have the consistency you want. Sprinkle with smoked paprika.


I'm bringing a box of crackers I already opened and didn't really like (Town House Flatbread Crisps - sea salt & olive oil flavor), but they actually go really well with this hummus. I may stop at the store on the way there though, and pick up some additional crackers. I don't want to bring the box of Wheat Thins that Lance has been snacking on.

I haven't tried those yet. Lance only eats Wheat Thins, and that's usually all I keep in the house, though occasionally I will buy a box of Triscuits for myself.

Mm. I like those crackers, and the Italian ones. They both go well with Brie or smoked cheddar. :) they should be amazing with the hummus. I had no idea how easy hummus was to make, either, though I have never had pumpkin hummus.

I have smoked cheddar, actually. Hmmm. And there are still some crackers left over...

I normally avoided making hummus from scratch because most recipes have tahini, which can be hard to find and I would have to buy way more than I need. This is perfect, and it was a huge hit at the potluck.
